NRMA calls for ban on sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030

Recommended Posts

Australia's total contribution to the world pollution total is 1.3%....so if we go to zero emission there would still be 98.7% total by the rest of the world.  Even cutting our emissions to the targets being talked about [depending on which side you believe] we will only get to a best of 0.3% reduction.
Short answer, if China, USA, Russia, Europe, India does nothing it makes no difference what we do...we are stuffed!!! 1% is not going to save the world!!!!
So when you are at your next drifting/burnout/V8 Supercar/drag etc meeting...ask yourself "Is this really politically correct or necessary given climate change etc?"
If anyone was really serious about climate change [other than as an employment opportunity or a way to make rude amounts of money.....think Al Gore] they would stop Forestry burning huge windrows of trash timber, stop every motorsport event, stop coal, stop B Doubles and every other truck, stop airlines etc etc etc  We'd all be living Amish!!!
Yes our volume of emissions is low compared to other countries, but so is our population.

Here's a link that shows per capita. Why are we so special that we get a free pass on this? As a first world country we should be doing much more than we are.

Because the majority people are inherently stupid as well as short sighted.

As long as we are happy now we will use plastic, burn fossil fuels, smoke cigarettes, pump raw sewage into the oceans and rivers.

Whilst we are doing this we will happily import goods from third world countries, use their land to grow our crops, their factories to manufacture our goods, and then bash burn and bury their environment and people.

We export fossil fuels/uranium to the third world so they can manufacturer our goods, all whislt at the same time shaming them.

I'm not any better. I try though. And i do my best to understand climate change. It's something I'm pretty into.

Mate, I try and do my best, sadly my best doesn't really cut it.

I have been "sort of" lucky, born in 1965, I had my first car at 15, I have burnt my fair share of fossil fuels with every conceivable infernal combustion engine there is, but now, as I'm getting older, the YOLO has a few issues, namely, my children.

What will the world be like when my kids are my age, 2050 at this stage looks like it's going to be a shit show.

If you "get in there real deep like" and look at some of the predictions IRT fresh water supply, drought, food supply it don't look good at all.

Meanwhile, I'm contemplating boosting my 86.

I told you I'm one of the stupid ones.

 

Warning: don't get me started on my views of population growth and how we have come so far past the tipping point it isn't funny

 

This is an interesting, even though it is outdated.

The Population Bomb is a best-selling book written by Stanford University Professor Paul R. Ehrlich and his wife, Anne Ehrlich, in 1968

Something screwy there....all the countries [except USA] that have a rating of over 10 are very small in population.  I think the way they report on it is way off somehow.  lets face it, Curacao??? Estonia???? Gibraltar??? New Caledonia  Ummm???  I find it hard to believe, something is biasing the samples.  Obviously a per capita report is next to useless in a real world sense.
